I saw. It's only a matter of time before i'm a blue chip!

servelefty2233 11-29-2006 04:21 PM

do you know how they calculate the stars and the blue chips?

xtremerunnerars 11-29-2006 04:54 PM

I do not. I can sort of gauge myself as to what i would be though...and it seems like i would be a 1 star recruit. I've beaten (some handedly) kids that were 1 star. I only beat one two star that i know, but that was a long time ago. He would probably smoke me now!

Read these sites for entertainment only- There are a lot of people who want your money, the internet has just made it so much easier for them.

The real facts are that if you are good, they will find you- All the same information about contacting universities and such is FREE at the LIBRARY.

This is just like "sponsorships" - Understand that if you should have one, you would, it is NOT a measure of how you should feel about you game or the progress you are making- just stand up and represent, get your grades and it will come.

Vegas, do you think that if i get to be a strong 4.5 or MAYBE a 5.0(if i work my *** off, which is what i intend to do) by senior year and if i have a 4.23 GPA that i'll have a chance at getting some financial aid?

If you are not yanking- Here's an example of a reference book:

A parent's and student-athelete's guide to athletic scholarships: Getting money without being taken for a (full) ride. c 2000 (Dion Wheeler).

Div III schools CANNOT offer athletic scholarships, so they write up a pretty nice package. The advantage is, that if you diecide not to play later on, they can't really take it away from you, since it was never based on playing.

Title IX has destroyed the smaller Men's sports- too bad, as it was supposed to INCREASE opportunity, and this will never get back in front of Congress to fix as it is not a priority. But fine schools like St.Louis-Washington, Brandeis (team name- "The Judges") and University of Chicago offer tennis AND are not too shabby to graduate from.

If you beat someone who is highly ranked (4 star for example) I am a 1 star...and the person you beat is not in your Grade...does that still help your ranking?

LASVEGAS ACES 12-04-2006 10:43 AM

I think the only rankings you want to think about are from the USTA tournaments you play. Just play in as many tournaments as you can afford- This will give you a "tournament tough" attitude for when you need it, and the averages between crumby draws and good ones will help.

Rankings are nice to look at and all, but I 've been told you want to concentrate on the person across the net from you, right now, and how you can play your best game.

You don't want to be looking at opponent's rankings and past games too much and freak out if they seem too good, or lose because you were overconfident.

okay...hmm thanks for answering the question?

LASVEGAS ACES 12-05-2006 05:42 AM

Where I play, you don't get extra points for beating younger guys.

With my freinds- the players I hang with, If a younger player "plays up" in a tourney we play them like you run after a home run- with sportsmanship and trying not to "show up" anyone.

The Tennis Recruiting Network has an email address and phone number for questions that are not covered in the site "Commonly asked questions" area.

that sight is good i just started and they had my name and a tornament i played last week. I wish you didn't have to pay though

Tennisrecruiting actually does not cost anything.
Just one quick thing... As far as I know, does not cost anything to players. All players who have competed in larger tournaments are listed on the website, and players/parents can update their information for free.

redsoxrock930 07-31-2007 08:45 PM

I think that is a great website

Silentgunz 07-31-2007 08:49 PM

dude awesome im on there :)

EasternRocks 08-01-2007 07:59 AM

lots of ppl go on that web alot. i heard that some college coaches go on that and go recruit some good kids at big tourneys. they also grade the kids in the same year as you. its very intersting.

JLyon 08-01-2007 08:15 AM

you're best working your butt off and getting into Top 250 National Ranking. Send videos to schools your interested in, but one thing make sure your video shows you playing someone at or above your level. Videos showing a potential recruit destroying some lowly beginner does nothing for coaches. Most coaches attend the Super Nationals and regional they will attend the Sectional Level tournaments (Southern = Bullfrog, Texas = Grand slam and MZ).

redsoxrock930 08-01-2007 08:31 AM

Do you know any other good sites like this

mrmo1115 08-01-2007 09:27 AM

tennisrecruting is good but sometimes there caculations and rankings are off and not exactly pin point as the usta rankings are on tennislink

i believe that if you are playing some one and just want a little preview of what your going against then you should go there

if ur just researching and want to find out more about people especially if u want to know what your true ranking is on usta then go to to tennislink

im not going to flame but ive beaten many kids who are either 4 or 5 chips and i am .500 with 3 chips i should be moved to a 4 chip or a 5 chip im confused about how he upgrade you from 3 to 4 or 5 to blue

any body know?
